• The Undertaker Explains Why Most Young Wrestlers Aren’t Interesting
One of the most discussed topics of 2021 in pro-wrestling was The Undertaker calling the current WWE product ‘soft’.
A lot of the fans agreed with The Phenom’s comments, but some new wrestlers weren’t happy (for obvious reasons). However, some wrestlers from the current roster agreed with Taker, including Bobby Lashley.
During an interview on the True Geordie Podcast, The American Badass was asked what’s missing from the WWE product today.
Below is what the former WWF Champion said:
“I feel like there is a level of grit that is missing from today’s product. I don’t know that it’s anybody’s fault, we all aged out and that new group has come up.
When you watch Brock (Lesnar) wrestle, you’re interested because he’s got this background not only as an amateur wrestler, professional wrestler, mixed martial artist.
Brock doesn’t do a bunch of crazy moves, Brock manhandles your a$$. You get in there and you get thrown around and you get smashed. Roman (Reigns) has a little bit of that to him, and when he wants to Randy (Orton) has that to him when he wants to.
But a lot of the younger talent, it’s that, the evolution of that comic book era, the superhero era, and I think that’s their motivation, and that’s what their inspiration is, and they didn’t have to come up and bust heads in bars and figure out how they were gonna eat and things like that.”
